There are a number of titles produced by the National Film Board of Canada
which may be useful to you. Since you are from New Zealand you would contact
the Montreal office at (514) 283-9439. Their fax number might be more
convenient. It's (514) 496-1895 but first take a look at their web site
( and do a search. Use "forest" as a keyword
rather than "timber". Related terms would be "logging" and "pulp and paper".
